Grey skies and rain can’t stop the fun

For their first meeting of the new season the ladies of Garston Group Wive’s and Widow’s Fellowship were treated to an open top bus tour of the city before enjoying afternoon tea at the Art’s Cafe in the Masonic Hall Hope Street.

The event which was superbly organised by Kath Williams and Christine Crawley took place under very grey skies and heavy showers however, this was not to deter the ladies who gathered for the start of the tour at the Albert Dock complex.

Whilst no strangers to the city, the on-board guide provided many interesting and to some, new information on the city, including the fact that Canada Boulevard, which runs behind the ‘Three Graces’ is adorned by a maple tree for every Canadian ship lost in WW2 and in gratitude to Canadian service men for their support and bravery during that conflict.

At the halfway point of the tour the ladies left the bus and proceeded to the Liverpool Arts Bar set within the beautiful grade two listed building at 22 Hope Street. Here the ladies were served an afternoon tea, and, should they wish, something a little stronger to go with their sandwiches, cakes and scones!

Concluding the day’s events those who wished to, continued the bus tour before returning to the Albert Dock. A great start to the new season which drew thanks from a guest from Hertfordshire who wrote to say how much she had enjoyed her day.

The next event for the fellowship will be on Friday 29 November and, whilst it is wonderful to see the group welcome guests from as far afield as Herefordshire, it would be even better to see more of the Garston Group ladies attending the next meeting.

All of the events are open to ALL the ladies of the Garston group and require pre booking two weeks prior to the event at a cost of just £5 per event.
